Cass Sunstein: Conservatives think Constitution means what it originally meant



TheBlaze:


Cass Sunstein says the conservative view of the Constitution requires a

‘time machine’

GLENN: John Kerry may be right.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: That Americans are just big, fat dumb dumb dummies and that's the only

reason why we oppose all of these things is because we're just too stupid to get

it.

PAT: Well, at least one American, maybe.

GLENN: You think so?

PAT: Yeah. I think one American doesn't get why this Cass Sunstein quote is any

sort of story.

GLENN: I don't know who that American is.

PAT: You don't know who that American is?

GLENN: No, I don't.

PAT: It's interesting how dumb this American is. He doesn't even know this

American is him.

GLENN: Now, see, I

PAT: That's pretty dumb.

GLENN: I think this is very unfair of you.

PAT: Dumb.

GLENN: Play the audio here of Cass Sunstein.

PAT: Here is Cass Sunstein on the conservative view of the Constitution.

SUNSTEIN: Let me explain the division among the conservative legal thinkers.

Some conservative legal things like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas is that

the Constitution means what it originally meant. That means that we should

understand the document by going through a sort of time machine and capturing

the public understanding of the public that ratified the document a century or

more than a century ago. So, that is a very distinctive approach which would

involve quite radical changes in our existing Constitutional understanding and

Justice Thomas is entirely clear on that.

GLENN: Okay. Why is this a problem?

PAT: Is that a problem so far?

STU: This is what you've been saying about progressivism for, what, 8 million

years it seems like. That is it crystalized.

PAT: Well, I don't know that this is a problem for us. We've been saying it the

whole time. Here's him saying it out of his own mouth.

GLENN: I told you this is what they say. This is what they believe. Cass

Sunstein just happens to be one of the real

PAT: He's honest.

GLENN: If you don't believe me, listen to Cass.

SUNSTEIN: Let me explain the division among conservative legal thinkers. Some

conservative legal thinkers like justice Scalia and Justice Thomas think that

the Constitution means what it originally meant.

PAT: Crazy.

GLENN: Can you imagine?

PAT: I mean, let that soak it for a second. Some conservative legal thinkers

actually believe that the Constitution means what it originally meant.

GLENN: (Laughter.)

PAT: What?!

STU: Can you imagine saying that in public?

PAT: I can't.

STU: Knowing you're being recorded and uttering that sentence?

PAT: I can't. Right out in the open. There it is, we don't believe in the

original intent of the U.S. Constitution.

STU: And we've evolved past it. As you've been saying, Glenn, progressivism that

is exactly what we've been saying about progressivism for how long? How long

have you said that exact thing that they just believe we are going to evolve

past it and you've quoted all these people from back in the day but, of course,

they deny that is what they're doing until now.

GLENN: This is why the Constitution no longer matters.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Because it doesn't matter what this is why they make fun of this is why

they make fun of the founding fathers. This is why they make fun of the you

know, the people like all of us that want to go and

PAT: Believe in the original intent.

GLENN: Right. Want to learn more about Washington, etc., etc. They are

irrelevant now. They're irrelevant. It is it's as relevant as, you know,

studying about George III to them. It makes no difference. What difference does

that make? It is not our history. It is why conservatives have such deep love

for the founding of this country, such deep love for the story of the American

Revolution and why progressives don't care at all. I mean, they don't it doesn't

matter to them. It's just another story in history.

PAT: I just have to amend my original statement. It's not because a big dummy.

It's just because you've been, I guess, saying this for so long that now that it

actually we have audio of it coming out of his own mouth and there it is, you

know, there's the proof positive, you move way beyond that and you I know.

GLENN: If this audience, if this audience doesn't get it at this point.

PAT: But you know what I like about it is this is something you can share with

your friends.

STU: This is clear, concise

PAT: I've been telling you this for a year. Here it is, and then play this for

them. We need to get a it's already on

The Blaze.

GLENN: This is Cass Sunstein, the regulatory czar. So, there is nothing

unconstitutional to him.

STU: Right. And he's also one of the smartest guys they have, too. This is just

some idiot blurting stuff out.

GLENN: This is the architect. This is the architect. This is the most dangerous

man in America

STU: And he explains, too, why there's no these arguments about healthcare not

being Constitutional don't relate to them.

GLENN: They don't care.

PAT: They don't care.

STU: It doesn't make any difference to them.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
